 26. The society will exercise all possible care of exhibits and containers, but will not assume any responsibility for loss or damage.  You must put your name and phone # on the bottom of the container.  Do not assume the show  committee knows who the container belongs to.  Please  pick up your own belongings after the show has  ended.  It is not anyone else's responsibility, unless you have made arrangements with someone else.
27.  Judges will not move arrangements.  Make sure your arrangement is placed in the correct class/lot. 
​28.  READ YOUR CLASSIFICATION BOOK FOR ALL OF THE RULES ON SHOWING SEEDLINGS IN OPEN AND ON THE BENCH.  THOSE RULES MUST BE FOLLOWED OR THE ENTRY WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.  
29.  Only named dahlias can be classified by senior judges.  Limit of only two per exhibitor, unless, arrangements are made ahead of time.  They can only be judged after the senior judge/s have completed their staging and staging area is cleaned up.  Dahlias must be classified two hours before judging/clerk meeting.  It is preferable that you make arrangements for classification, of unclassified dahlias, ahead of time, if at all possible. Everyone is busy staging,  including judges.  They can only classify if they have time and their  staging is complete and their staging space is cleaned up.
30.  All staging areas must be cleaned up before judging can begin.  Let's all pitch in with this task.
